I am searching for info on Mary Stork, born yorkshire but unsure when. She married Mark Watson in 1840 at Hull.
I am trying to find out when and where she was born, and who her parents were.

Her marriage cert says that she was of full age, a spinster, living at Whip's Court and her father was the late John Stork, marriner.
I have only located her on the 1841 census, with Mark and his parents, but I think she died before the 1851 census.
Any help would be great, thankyou

If you could confirm her death, and obtain the cert, you would at least know how old she was when she died, which might help your quest

Mary Report 16 Jan 2012 14:45

Samuel Standidge Stork born in hull 1826 was also a Master Marriner,as stated on Google.

EDIT John Stork married Elizabeth Standage had Samuel Standage Stork in Hull.
Samuel was born 1773 and married Ann Tong in 1798 in Hull.
They had Elizabeth Standage Stork 1799
John Stork 1801, is he the one who had Samuel S Stork 1826??
He would have been too young to Mary Stork if it is the same John Stork.

John Stork married Mary Potter in Wrawby 12/7/1824,Samuel Standidge Stork born 1826 is with William Potter in 1841 he was born Wrawby 1781 so looks like Mary Potters dad.

I am looking for information on Samuel Standidge Stork, who was part owner of an early 19th century brigantine, also partly owned by my ancestor, David Fewson, Master Mariner, of Kingston-upon Hull. I am writing book which involves both these gentlemen and have a portrait of David Fewson. The book is about lifesavers in my family who lived at Spurn Point.
